Our girls ruling the radio waves

We’ve been really proud of our team for helping us spread the word about The Bull and the things we feel passionately about – and both Molly and Chef Beth have taken their turns on BBC Sussex radio this month!

Molly was first up speaking on the BBC Food and Drink Show with some great local guests, including our lovely organic coffee suppliers Red Roaster, discussing Sussex food producers and what’s been happening recently at The Bull. Then it was the turn of our amazingly creative chef Beth who was discussing her recent award win and the progression of female chefs.

Then if Molly hadn’t had enough airtime she was back on with BBC Sussex Drivetime host Sarah Gorrell speaking about our incredible £5,000 donation to Albion in the Community from our December fundraising. Then they got chatting about Molly’s TV choices as you do…and now it looks like Molly might be joining a panel of guests on Sarah’s brilliant show so listen out for more TV recommendations soon!

What a difference a year makes …

So it’s officially been a year since we relaunched our pub following a huge expansion and refurbishment programme. It’s been wonderful to see how our customers have now embraced our dining room area for a different eating experience while still getting the most out of our cosy front and back bars. We hope that now we’re able to offer our customers the best of both worlds, the informality of a traditional country pub with a beautiful dining room option and the security of being able to book a table – give it a go if you haven’t tried it yet.

Beer, balls and Banter – it’s Six Nations Rugby

Another reason to love seeing the back of January is that it’s time for Rugby Six Nations at The Bull. Already it’s been an incredible start with some blinding wins from England and some great rugby. We’ll be showing the Rugby Six Nations England games LIVE in The Snug come and join us for a great atmosphere and free snacks for England matches. Next up..

Look after the one that looked after you – Mothering Sunday

One of our favourite occasions of the year is coming round again on Sunday 31 March – it’s Mother’s Day. We love to see mums being appreciated and brought to The Bull for a special treat with their families – as it’s a Sunday it will be a busy day here so please book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. We’ve got three opportunities to give mum a treat – you could bring her for a surprise breakfast before a day out with the family or book ahead and have a relaxing lunch or dinner. Go on. You know she deserves it.

Keeping it retro with our prices until 1 March

We’ve kept our prices at 2018 rates for the beginning of the year and they’ll be rising on 1 March so now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a great value minibreak at Britain’s Best FreeHouse! We have six individually designed boutique AA 5 star rooms with beautiful en-suite bathrooms with Cowshed products and we’ve even got a Buy One Get One free offer on breakfasts too. Book online and enjoy the days getting a bit longer and the feeling of a bit of Spring in the air…

Last chance to BOGOF for a slap up Breakfast

Everything good must come to an end – and this has definitely been a good way to cheer up February. We’ve really enjoyed having so many of you visiting for our buy one get one free breakfast offer, but it can’t last forever and will be coming to an end on 1 March. We’re open for breakfast 8-11am on weekdays and 8-10.30am on weekends so there’s still lots of opportunities to use your code CHEERUPBREAKFAST before it’s over for another year. But don’t worry we’ll be thinking of more offers before that to keep you interested!

Eating the Seasons

It’s time to make the most of game being on the menu for another month and then we’ll be looking ahead to the changing season with some delicious new produce coming our way. We’ll be off to our secret local spots to forage for wild garlic and picking the rhubarb from our kitchen garden. We’re excited for the Spring Lamb from our friends Camilla and Roly at nearby Saddlescombe Farm on National Trust land covering 450 acres of stunning South Downs countryside. They have the highest animal welfare standards and natural farming methods – our chefs are 100 per cent sure it makes their lamb taste better than anyone else’s!
